Storm Shadow lives: Lost Planet 'actor' signed for upcoming G.I. Joe film

7:00 PM on 12.24.2007 // Nick Chester

Here's something you might not have known: Lost Planet's lead character, the horrendously named Wayne, was modeled after a Japanese television actor. The Korean-born Byung-hun Lee has won a slew of awards and has made the ladies swoon since his acting debut in 1991. 

Here's something I certainly didn't know: THEY'RE MAKING A G.I. JOE MOVIE, WTF!? Why does it take the official Capcom US blog for me to know this information? Shouldn't I have been informed the moment the rights to this film were optioned? If anything, someone should be compensating me for all of that time I spent as a child trying to find a Storm Shadow figure. That bugger was next to impossible to find. 

The point (and I do have one): Lee has been signed to play the role of Storm Shadow in the upcoming film, which is set for release in August 2009 (according to the ever-reliable IMDB). He'll be joined by Sienna Miller as The Baroness and Ray Park (X-Men's Toad) as Snake Eyes. 

Please don't suck. And sign me to play Cobra Commander. Please.

[Thanks, Mark!]
